AUGUST
       On each Wednesday we are serving dinner at the shop;  we call this, "The Upper Room."  Each week a different group signs up to host the night, which means they will provide the food and a few volunteers for the evening.  If you are interested in serving on a Wednesday night we are always looking for more people, or groups, who can bring food and help deliver meals throughout the community.  You can email zac@riddenword.org for more info, or click the "contact us" tab at the top and send us a message.  
        Perhaps the biggest way you can help is to get the word out about "The Upper Room."  We need help finding people that we can serve each week.  A person does not have to be homeless or without a job to join us for dinner that night.  A person does not have to be a single parent, or parent at all.  Our goal is for anyone who struggles any bit financially and could use one night of the week being a little easier,  financially and work load easier, to come and join us.  If you, or someone you know, needs help and could use this but they are unable to make the drive, due to no transportation or age, we will deliver food to them each week.  Please think of anyone that could benefit from this and direct them our way, or maybe if they are timid coming alone then you could offer to eat with them one night.      
      Some more BIG NEWS for Ridden Word has to do with Amazon.com.  If you ever buy anything on Amazon, please log into smile.amazon.com for future purchases.  Everything will work the same for purchases, but this way you will be able to select Ridden Word as the charity you wish to support with your purchase.  When you do this, 0.5% of your purchase will go to help fund Ridden Word.  Please help spread the news...
        Also, we want to make sure everyone knows that we are a 501 C-3 organization.  What does this mean for you?  Anytime that you write us a donation, we keep your records of giving and at the end of the year we send you a statement that you will be able to claim on your taxes.  Since everything we provide at the shop is FREE, we depend on people's donation to pay the bills each month.  Please consider being a donor for Ridden Word.  If you would like to make a financial donation, you can find our PO Box in the "contact us" tab. 
    If you are a regular volunteer, thank you so much... please continue to serve with us.  If you have not made it, please make time and come see what it is all about.  If you have any open dates available, or if you know a group that would like to schedule a work night other than a Tuesday or Thursday, please CONTACT US! We could use the help!
